5 Tips For Coilover Adjustment and Installation

Published on December 22, 2017 under Video

Adding an adjustable suspension to a car is a great way to maximize the performance. But installing and adjusting coilovers can be a little intimidating. What happens if you get the ride height wrong? What if it’s too low? Will my car flip over? These questions may seem a little extreme, but I have seen them asked over and over. Well I made the “will my car flip” one up.

A coilover is an a spring and shock absorber assembly that allows for adjustments to be made to the vehicle’s ride height, damping, rebound and more. This will allow us to dial in the suspension for our exact needs. The coilovers we are using for this video only allow for ride height adjustment. The folks at New German Performance sent me their MK3 coilover kit to check on on the GTI.
